At its Annual General Meeting held today (8 May), Bill Shannon, chairman of JSG, the UK textile services provider, made the following statement: “Following a year of continued growth, the performance of both the workwear and HoReCa divisions has continued to meet management forecasts. Accordingly, we expect the full year results to be in line with current market expectations.”

Shannon added: “The development of the new Leeds high volume linen facility, which will deliver considerable logistical benefits and increased capacity for our business in Northern England, is proceeding to plan and remains on course for coming on stream in the spring of 2020.”
